The Politics of Jesus: A Conversation with Dr. Obery Hendricks


12:30 - 2:00 PM EDT


Religion increasingly inhabits the political sphere in our country and is claimed as a motivating source by conservative and liberal leaders alike. Many of these leaders are Christian and profess that their policies follow the teachings of Jesus. And yet their policies are often diametrically opposed, promoting very different views of morality and how one should live.
Please join the Center for American Progress for a provocative conversation that explores these issues with one of our country’s leading public theologians.

Featured Participants:
Dr. Obery M. Hendricks, Jr., Author, The Politics of Jesus and Professor of Biblical Interpretation, New York Theological Seminary
Melody C. Barnes, Executive Vice President for Policy, Center for American Progress
